What I find really tough about not having a belief in a god is that you can’t pray, ask for help and have a bit of hope (false hope, but at least there is). You have to be really strong to be responsible and own up to your shortcomings and mistakes and tell yourself that the fault is yours; that there’s no one else that can fix it besides yourself and there are no miracles.

This composite NASA image of the spiral galaxy M81, located about 12 million light years away, includes X-ray data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope (green), infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope (pink) and ultraviolet data from GALEX (purple). The inset shows a close-up of the Chandra image. At the center of M81 is a supermassive black hole that is about 70 million times more massive than the Sun.
